Guillemot Cove Nature Reserve Hike

This is a nice nature reserve and also one of Kitsap County's best kept secrets! *Some members had difficulty finding the nature reserve, please review the link below! I will email my cell phone number to KSG members who RSVP a day or two in advance of the hike* Plan on getting a little dirty, a little muddy, a little wet, a few nettle stings, a little sweaty and having a lot of fun! This is a moderate/difficult 1 mile(ish) hike down a steady slope to the beach and cabin area. Some of the trails are skirting wetlands and are covered with mud and water (1 to 3 inches) in small sections. The cabin is not accessible, but provides a nice resting area on the deck and it's a great place to eat a snack, rehydrate and take in the wondrous views of Hood Canal! This is also a great beach combing spot too, tides permitting. After the hike we can meet at Seabeck Marina for a coffee/tea at Turies espresso. If you're hungry, you can grab a slice of Seabeck pizza or shop the Seabeck General Store!


Wear proper foot wear/hiking attire!

Bring water!

Bring snacks to share while we are on the beach!

Insect repellent recommended!

No Bathroom facilities, plan accordingly!

Children under 12 not recommended.

*This meetup will be canceled if there is inclimate weather*

    I've been looking forward to this trip, but I've just been asked to make arrangements for a reception following a memorial service. That's what I do--I organize and facilitate events such as weddings, conferences, and funerals. Obviously, weddings are way more fun and usually there is more advance notice. If I finish early enough I'll try to catch up to you.

    I really want to make it this time to this spot. I live about a mile from it and have never been. I volunteer/work late on Friday nights so I have to play it by ear. I hope to make it.
